worry about this. >> pretty boring. let's move on to the baltimore ravens because they've got a linebacker who said i support gay marriage. well, that started a whole firestorm because a local legislator named emmett burns wrote a letter to the team saying the line back her no business getting involved in this -- backer had no business getting involved in this kind of thing and said i know of no other nfl player who had done what he is doing. what will it take for there to be an active professional male active who says yeah, i'm gay and who has a problem? >> derek, what do you think? we have a debate about masculinity, isn't it? >> a couple things. you know there are gay guys in the nfl. there's no question that there are. >> there's gay people everywhere. >> so what would it do for the gay rights movement to have a guy come out who everybody thinks is really big, strong and tough and say yeah, i happen to like dudes? i think that would be the biggest step forward since stonewall that. would be huge because then regular dudes who may building
5:48 pm
on the fence and not quite sure about what it is to be gay -- >> regular dudes. >> heterosexual dudes would say big joe is gay, it's okay. >> oh, no, i don't go along with you. >> ex-pro players are saying wade davis who used to play for the redskins came out after the team and i think that was an issue. how am i going to be treated by my teammates. >> gay marriage is coming out saying i support this issue. that's not even going that far. >> that doesn't mean that he's gay. it just means he believes in right for other folks. >> i think what is different is even though society is more comfortable with people living their own authentic lives, that just hasn't spilled into some of the pro sports and in particular, the ones where you have to be seen as masculine and dominant and it's just two very different images in some people's minds. >> that may be the case, boutte got other sports, basketball,
5:49 pm
baseball -- but you've got other sports, basketball, baseball, all the sports where it's a team game. i haven't played pro level ball and don't know what it's like. i believe most guys would judge a guy on what kind of person he is. it would not matter whether he was gay, straight, whatever. >> it reminds me of the civil rights movement where you have people yelling get them people back to africa. guess what, we're still here. that's going to lap with gays. gays have been -- happen with gays. gays have been here since the beginning of time. let's talk about this actress who lost 20-pound since splitting with her husband of 11 years, she's happier and more confident. looks kind of ripped up. >> she's 20 pounds lighter, do you think she'd look better with the 20 pounds? >> she's a woman in a two piece. women should feel good about themselves whether they're with or without a man.
5:50 pm
>> what about revenge makeovers, is that the best payback after a breakup? >> i guess for some people it is, but revenge is really for the other people. if i'm doing something for america it's for me. if she's losing the weight because she wants to be healthy and look better, but we have this sort of skewed vision in this country and it's not beautiful unless it's almost skinny, svelte, raillike and if that's what's motivating her, that's troublesome. if she's just motivated on her own to look better, do you. >> i don't like the word revenge. what does that mean? >> i've seen women going through rebirth. i've had several friend goes through major splits and it's very painful and some of what they found, though, is finding a new self, hopeful not just on the outside, but on the inside. >> and do it because you want to do it to file good about you, not because some imagine has left you. >> fair enough -- some man has left you. >> fair enough. from the male perspective can i tell you this, when i've been in relationships, i get fatter

5:58 pm
tebow in denver, it's gimmicky and collegelike almost, but if you have a quarterback with his speed and can make decisions like he can, when you're in baylor, it's difficult, you're asking defensive ends and linebackers to read whether or not he's going to keep or give the football and he can also throw it down the field. it's a lot to ask a defense to get ready for in one week of preparation. >> reporter: it made a lot of people talk about his performance. obviously he exceeded expectations, but his a man target pierre garcon didn't -- his main target pierre garcon didn't practice today. how big of a loss would that be if he can't play sunday? >> it would be critical. he was targeted six times, made four catches, scored a touchdown, set up a first and goal from the 1, made a nice concentration call. he'll be an okay replacement. garcon got 20 million guaranteed and signed four minutes pa the new league for a reason. -- after the new league for a reason. he is their playmaker. >> reporter: we'll see in st.
